“All right,” I said, “What agency do you really work for, and who is your most important handler?”

“You little spy!” he said, smiling. “Here’s the answer: I’m loaned to the CIA, and must sometimes help the FBI; who my main handler is, not even God knows the answer to that.  Certainly, I don’t.  I call him ‘Mr. B.’” (Judyth Vary Baker, as she spoke to her lover Lee Harvey Oswald, Thursday, July 18, 1963, p. 389.) 

“…it  has to be Phillips.  He is the traitor,” said Lee Oswald, “Phillips is behind this. I need you to remember that name…David Atlee Phillips. (Wednesday, November 20, 1963, p. 521.)

INTO JUNG’S SHADOW

.

A frequent statement about the mystery of the John Kennedy Assassination: someone who was intimately involved with Lee Oswald would have surely stepped forward to divulge secrets!  One of those “someones” was Judyth Vary Baker, the mistress of Oswald during 1963, when, as a cancer researcher, she became involved in what had been known as the “Project.” The Project partially consisted of plans about clandestinely killing Dictator Fidel Castro.

Baker’s gradual involvement from a bright and promising student in cancer research into the murky world of espionage and political undercover was adequately explained in her book as a participant and lover of Lee Harvey Oswald. That she survived personal assassination, as so many other participants have not, was truly amazing. Fortunately, she had survived, and the results were the missing pieces of the Kennedy fiasco.

The inner-workings of the 1963 fiasco: most were part of an ultra-right-wing political movement to fight Communism; many, however, of the corrupt world of crime and government espionage that included many players in New Orleans, was only interested in Power.

The list of  “players” seemed endless.  I covered only a few here of the more curious:

.

CAST OF PLAYERS

# The Project, Alton Ochsner, Mary Sherman, and David Ferrie. A crucial person in Judyth’s career was Dr. Alton Ochsner, one-time President of the American Cancer Society, and Chief of Surgery at Tulane Medical School, and then President of the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans.  Ochsner had also directed INCA (The Information Council for the Americas), an anti-Communist organization in Latin America.

Dr. Ochsner also led Judyth, slated for an internship at Miami University, into another internship with a Dr. Mary Sherman, director of Ochsner’s bone pathology laboratory at Ochsner’s clinic. Sherman was one of the foremost cancer researchers in America. Sherman admired Judyth’s experiments with the carcinogenic SV-40 virus and other fast-growing cancers. Baker’s dream was to continue medical school at Tulane, but such as dream took a careening detour on April 26, 1963, when she met Lee Oswald at the post office. It was a spectacular coincidence.

The secret laboratory was introduced to Judyth through David Ferrie, former Eastern Airlines pilot, and CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) operative enmeshed in the New Orleans Ultra-Right. Other right-wing CIA operatives, who wanted to see the success of the Project and the defeat of Fidel Castro, further camouflaged the secret operation. Ferrie was an “operator” that lurked behind the scenes throughout the Kennedy Mystery. Ferrie’s homosexuality caused him to be defrocked from the priesthood and the loss of his job at Eastern Airlines.  It was not enough, however, to dissuade the CIA from using him. Ferrie was a valuable “player,” especially, because of his New Orleans Mob connections.

“I trust nobody I know in the agency. The CIA and the Mob are bed-buddies, which means no protection for the (Commander-in-) Chief (Kennedy) from the Mob,” said Ferrie. “There’s no telling if this talk has reached higher levels or not. The CIA is no friend of JFK.  He fired their precious Allen Dulles and wrecked General Cabell’s career…Ochsner is naïve when it comes to dealing with these slick Texas millionaires, the CIA, and the Mob. They’ve got him wrapped up for Christmas, right where they want him. They drink together, hunt together, play golf together, gamble together and decide what’s best for the country together.”

David Ferrie’s apartment became one of the sites where experiments for the “Project” was central. Mice with tumors were “harvested” there for use in the bio-weapon. Dr. Sherman oversaw their transport to her Prytania Street laboratory.

# Guy Banister. Ironically, Guy Banister was a private detective who was under the pay of Mobster Carlos Marcello, while also investigating corruption in the New Orleans Police Department. A former FBI agent, Banister, at one time, had been in charge of 500 FBI agents in the Chicago region. He now spent a good portion of his efforts to uncover Communist traitors and radicals. Banister was fairly aware and active in many get-Castro projects, such as the bio-chemical project.

# Carlos Marcello. The powerful Godfather of New Orleans, eager to aid the get-Castro movement (in revenge for the Mob being rioted out of Cuba), protected the “Project,” as well as harass and deport suspicious Cuban spies (pp. 218-219). Later, under the Kennedy brothers’ heavy thumb in challenging corruption, Marcello and other mobsters vowed to kill Kennedy.

Clay Shaw.  In 1963, Clay Shaw was General Manager of the International Trade Mart in New Orleans, and one of the main parties in the 1967-1969 trial of Shaw by District Attorney Jim Garrison for conspiring to murder President Kennedy. Shaw denied knowledge of Lee Oswald, though Judyth said that they definitely knew each other, and, in fact, Shaw drove the black Cadillac on Thursday, August 29, 1963, to Jackson, Louisiana.  Oswald was a passenger.

Clay Laverne Shaw reserved a room for Oswald and Judyth at the Monteleone Hotel on Sunday, July 7, 1963.

Shaw was acquitted of charges in the Garrison trial. The jurors, however, were still suspicious of a conspiracy.

“The CIA’s presence in New Orleans was as blatant as it was logical,” said Baker.  “Shaw and his business associates who traveled abroad cooperated with the CIA’s information gathering as a patriotic duty.  They would fill out reports for the CIA on people they met and matters they observed. Some spent far more time gathering information than others, and the line between a mere domestic contact and a spy could get fuzzy.” (p. 325)

Richard Helms, former director of the CIA, testified in 1979 that Shaw was, indeed, a CIA Domestic Contact Service Operative.

“Shaw represents important anti-Castro interests,” Lee Oswald told Judyth.

“Lee said Clay Shaw were both Ochsner’s longtime friend and Dave’s friend, and that he suspected that Shaw had strong connections to the CIA,” said Judyth Baker. “Lee also knew that Shaw was fiercely anti-Castro and had cooperated with the WASP (pamphlet distribution at the aircraft carrier) project.  But Lee also suspected he was a member of the get-Kennedy coalition.  Lee considered Shaw to be a wildcard.” (p. 380)

# Jack Ruby.  Judyth’s introduction to Jack Ruby began with gossip that Burlesk strippers shared with her. Ruby apparently worked for Godfather Carlos Marcello. “Ruby handled Marcello’s interests in Dallas,” said Baker, “including cop-fixing.” Judyth’s first meeting with “Sparky Rubenstein” was on Monday, May 6, 1963, at the home of David Ferrie.  Lee Oswald was also present.

The next time Judyth met “Sparky” was on Thursday, June 6, 1963, at the 500 Club on Bourbon Street, along with Carlos Marcello, Clay Shaw, and a few other underground “dignitaries,” to talk about the “Venezuelan (arms shipment) matter.” Judyth came with Lee Oswald, David Ferrie, and David and Anna Lewis.  At one point, “Sparky” signaled Lee Oswald to Marcello’s table to discuss “how to handle” the Venezuelan shipment.  The final time Judyth saw Jack “Sparky” Rubenstein was on television with the televised assassination on Sunday, November 24, 1963, of Lee Oswald by Ruby.

(“Ruby was in regular contact with associates of Carlos Marcello and Santos Trafficante in 1963,” said Baker.)

Judyth asked about a glance Oswald gave a second before his assassination: “Did Lee recognize his old friend just seconds before he was shot?”  Jack Ruby told Baker that he had known Oswald since Oswald was a child (p. 236).

“They had taken my true love away from me, in front of the whole world,” said Baker. “And they did it in a police station, where law and order should prevail. The perverse irony of it all was only overshadowed by my anguish.  It was the worst day of my life.”

# Lee Harvey Oswald. “I gave up trying to follow the players, techniques, and motives in Lee’s complex covert world,” said Judyth Baker. Later: “I had always admired the work that spies did. Now I realize I was actually talking to a real one!”  (Judyth Baker as she talked about Lee Oswald, April 27, 1963 [p. 134])

Espionage was a childhood ambition of Lee Oswald. He wanted to become an undercover government agent ever since his viewing of the television series I Led Three Lives (1953-1956) about international intrigue and FBI espionage (p.133). David Ferrie recommended Lee to contacts in the Marines that would pave the way for Oswald “as a candidate for intelligence training, including lessons and spycraft.” (p. 197)  Baker mentioned in the book that officials remarked of the teenage Oswald as a good prospect.

Like all government “spy assets,” Oswald apparently carried his share of the undercover and espionage load, running chores, hiding codes, exchanging intelligence information, and servicing a bioweapon to be smuggled into Cuba. Oswald did various “duties” that he surely felt were of value to his “handlers”; especially in a CIA/FBI/Mobster encrusted city as New Orleans (Oswald was not foreign to this world of intrigue, as his Uncle Charles “Dutz” Murret was an illegal bookkeeper for Mobsters Carlos Marcello and Sam Saia [page 147]).  Judyth saw in Guy Banister’s secret files that David Ferrie and Oswald “were engaged in real anti-Castro and anti-subversive projects, albeit secret ones, which were sponsored by the U.S government.” (p. 174)

Charles ‘Dutz’ Murret

 

Oswald, at some point in the underworld meanderings of point-counter-point, deemed his life had become expendable. His vulnerability surpassed Barker’s argument (pp. 157, 276) that Oswald couldn’t have killed Officer J.D. Tippit; it surpassed the argument that Oswald could not have been on the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository at the time of the Kennedy shooting (p. 558).  It also surpassed the point that many people in his life, such as George de Mohrenschildt and Ruth Payne, had CIA connections (pp.  392, 491). Oswald knew his life was in danger (pp. 505, 520).

“I was supposed to spy on the project for the CIA to keep everybody honest,” said Oswald, “And then, all other little things they’ve had me do, such as those pro-Castro stunts…they’ll kill me just to get rid of me.”

Barker, as lovers would, was aware that Oswald had penetrated the “heart of the groups in New Orleans who were serious about killing Kennedy…(as well as) an elite circle of even more powerful men, mostly from Texas, composed of politicians, whose fanatical patriotism was mixed with monetary ambitions and a lust for power.”  (p. 419)

Oswald was deliberately enmeshed in two operative teams: one to shoot Kennedy, and one to “abort” the event.  The complexity of such an operation boggles the imagination (p. 519).

.

CALLED FOR A PERSONAL STUDY

.

“Lee,” I said, “I know you’re used to leading three lives, or thirty, but I’d rather tell the truth.”  “Ah,” he said, “You’re still not use to it like I am…false trails, false records, fake names.”  (Judyth Baker and Lee Oswald, July 19, 1963, as they spoke about events [page 402])

Only after a serious study of the book with its plush, intimate facts and comments–in their entirety–taken in detail and systematically–will readers come to appreciate and understand the complex threads of conspiracy.

Barker could possibly–the same as Oswald–have been selected for the destiny they entered at an early age, and perhaps it was more than coincidence that they met in New Orleans (“I was useful because I was almost untraceable, since I wasn’t a doctor yet…,”  p. 182).

David Ferrie had spoken of such projects that involved human control:

“…he had more to tell us about mind control and the experiments on people, frequently without their knowledge,” said Baker.  “Yes, American citizens were being used as guinea pigs by their own government.”

“These things never die,” said David Ferrie. “It’s an iron-clad law that it takes more energy to stop a government program than to start one. This is self-perpetuating.” (p. 217)

The prospect that the inner-workings of men and society have become victim to hidden and minute control from sinister forces should have frightened us all.

.

JUDYTH ANSWERED CRITICS

.

Judyth Barker discovered numerous scandalous and false accusations against her on the Internet and in the media; she has attempted to answer and correct as much of the criticisms and attacks as she could over the years. The extensive coverage of those rebuttals was beyond the scope of this article, but some websites (out of a multitude) were available:

Jeffrey Holmes, 2010: “Far be it for someone to actually read the book before writing a review.  Do the research, as I have, and you will begin to see the whole picture here.

“I am a New Orleans researcher and own a tour company, after doing extensive legwork for a number of years it becomes quite clear as to what was happening in New Orleans in the early 60’s. 

“When it comes to facts, Me & Lee and Dr. Mary’s Monkey are both historical documents that help fill out the truth behind the assassination of JFK. Do yourself a favor and be a true investigative journalist, although you may not like what you find.” 

http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-19872-judyth_vary_baker_me.html.

Judyth Vary Baker said:  “I was told to keep my mouth shut if I wanted to stay alive, and I did so for decades; but I finally realized that if I did not speak out during my lifetime, I would have no way of defending the book. I had decided to go to the grave, originally, with what I knew, and to simply let my son publish the book posthumously. Then I would not have to battle the forces that could (and did) ruin my life.

“However, two factors came into play to change my mind about going to the grave before this vital information about Oswald was released to the public:  1) my son was unaware of the milieu in New Orleans, and in the nation, in 1963, and, worse, knew almost nothing about the lies and falsehoods circulating about Oswald.  He would be unable to defend the book.  2) I realized that he would not understand the value of the materials I had saved from the past, and how they helped me achieve the feat of remembering the conversations.  A streetcar ticket dated April 28, for example, would have little meaning for my son, whereas, for me, it evoked a host of sharp, strong memories, including key conversations.”

TrineDay publisher, Kris Millegan, said: “The saddest thing is that we have no Fourth Estate today, simply propaganda founts trumpeting books such as Case Closed and most recently Vincent Bugliosi’s Reclaiming History that upholds the highly discredited official story… (his book completely ignores) astounding verifiable historical revelations…the forces and men who killed President Kennedy are still getting away with it.”

COMPLEXITY OF HIGHLIGHTS

.

A sampling-catalog of a few synchronistic highlights from Judyth Baker’s memoir typified the extent and mystery of the Kennedy fiasco:

# There were actually “six” tramps arrested in Dallas on November 22, 1963. One of the tramps was a suspected Chauncey Holt, a mafia asset. He was one of three arrested but then released without charges. Holt was photographed in front of the Trade Mart on August 16, 1963, with Lee Oswald.  Holt was a disguise artist who made Oswald’s fake IDs. He worked on CIA projects such as Operation Mongoose (p. 462).

.

# George de Mohrenschildt, geologist, and handler of Oswald, had dated Jackie Kennedy’s mother. “Jackie Bouvier Kennedy called him ‘Uncle George’ when she was young; George also knew Ruth Paine’s father.” (p. 393)

# “The Texas Theater was owned by (billionaire) Howard Hughes, who had strong ties with the CIA.”  (Judyth Baker) Connected with Oswald’s arrest, a witness reported seeing an “Oswald double” leave through the back door of the theater and entering a police car on November 22, 1963. (p. 537)

# Oswald attended and talked at a Russian seminar on July 27, 1963. Jesuit “spies” concerned about the Sandinista insurrection Latin America infiltrated the seminar. Bobby Kennedy also sent an inquiring Jesuit priest. The CIA and Mafia asked Oswald to discourage the insurrection. Oswald said the spies worked for Aristotle Socrates Onassis, a Greek shipping magnate who later became the husband of Jackie Kennedy, John Kennedy’s widow  (pp. 416, 421).

# Over the years a number of researchers had suggested that David Atlee Phillips (CIA psyops expert in Operation Sherwood and PBSUCCESS), alias Maurice Bishop, was involved in planning the JFK assassination.  CIA agent E. Howard Hunt named Phillips as a participant in the assassination  (p. 521).

# “Wild BillDonovan, a leading American Cancer Society official was also the Founding Father of the CIA.  Donovan was also a friend of Alton Oschner  (p. 459).

# Oswald’s uncle, Charles (Dutz) Murret, died in 1964, a bad year for witness-deaths.

# Oswald showed Judyth a pistol that was ‘not’ a semi-automatic pistol. Authorities claimed that a semi-automatic weapon shot Officer J.D. Tippit.

# Robert Gene Baker, a powerful Washington insider, Billie Sol Estes, a powerful Texas businessperson, and Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, were instrumental in the Assassination. Hitman Malcolm Wallace was involved in eight murders connected to Lyndon Johnson. Wallace’s fingerprint “was found on a box of books stacked in the so-called ‘sniper’s nest’ in the Texas School Book Depository…”  “…later in life, after LBJ’s death, Estes admitted to secretly funneling millions of dollars to LBJ, and that it was LBJ who ordered the murder of President John F. Kennedy…”  (pp. 522-523)

.

BLOOD-THIRSTY GAME

.

“The pursuit of power is a blood-thirsty game that knows few rules,” said fellow assassination researcher Edward Haslam, “It kills to silence. It punishes those who get in the way. It threatens those who might speak up. Lee was a casualty of this ugly game. His death preserved their secrets.”  (Forward, Me & Lee, November 2009)

“…if Oswald was not the shooter, then it is questionable if the plotting in the New Orleans actually resulted in the assassination,” summarized investigative journalist Jim Marrs. “The New Orleans plot was real enough, but the true assassins remain masked behind the smoke from the Grassy Knoll…events in New Orleans in the summer of 1963 reveal the murderous interconnections of the major players in the assassination.” (p. 566)

.

A WILDERNESS OF CHICANERY

.

“Contrary to published accounts, Lee Harvey Oswald was a patriot who loved his country,” said publisher Kris Millegan in the dedication to Me & Lee. “He submersed himself in an officially-sanctioned covert arena where one’s inventive ‘legend’ becomes an entry into a netherworld of intrigue, compartmentalization, secret operations and contrived situations…whichever guise is called up by a taskmaster giving the high sign through the shadows of plausible deniability: A wilderness of chicanery, deceit and double/triple crosses.”

THE HARDCORE DEFINITION

.

JFKCurious Carl Jung in his house's garden sitting and smoking pipe in Knusnacht, Switzerland, 1949 (1)

Psychoanalyst Carl Jung

.

The late psychoanalyst Carl Jung examined the magic and elegant world of what he called “synchronistic events” and “meaningful coincidence”: “temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events,” “connecting (togetherness) principle,” and “acausal parallelism.”  Jung introduced the concept as early as the 1920s, but gave a full statement of it only in 1951 in an Eranos lecture, and in 1952, published a paper, Synchronizität als ein Prinzip akausaler Zusammenhänge (Synchronicity – An Acausal Connecting Principle), in a volume with a related study by the physicist (and Nobel laureate) Wolfgang Pauli.

.

THE UNDERLYING PRINCIPLE

.

It was a principle that Jung felt gave conclusive evidence for his concepts of archetypes (universal symbolic representations and imagery) and the collective unconscious (a consciousness shared by all mankind, similar to the akashic records [in Indian religion, a supposed all-pervading field in the ether in which a record of past events is imprinted]). It was descriptive of a governing dynamic that underlies the whole of human experience and history-social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. These are concurrent events that first appear to be coincidental but later turn out to be causally related (seem to take on real and intimate, personal meaning) and are termed incoincident.

.

JFKCurious The Akashic Records

The World of the Universal Akashic Records
 .

Jung believed that many experiences perceived as coincidence were not merely due to chance but, instead, suggested the manifestation of parallel (real) events or deliberate circumstances reflecting this “governing dynamic” (the akashic all-pervading consciousness).

One of Jung’s favorite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, in which the White Queen says to Alice:

“It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backward.”

“A simple example of synchronicity is when you suddenly think about someone you haven’t seen for a few years and just after you have the thought, that person calls you.  At the other end of the scale are visions or dreams where the person sees an event that either occurred but which they did not witness, or one that occurs after they ‘see’ it.”

http://leo9.hubpages.com/hub/Synchronicity-1.

Coincidental events, which are later found to be causally related (but concrete events), were termed “Incoincident” because “a grouping of events connected by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of a concrete sense of cause and effect.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity.

It maintained that just as events may be connected by a causal line, they may also be connected by meaning. “Therefore it cannot be a question of cause and effect, but of a falling together in time, a kind of simultaneity,” said Jung.

http://www.digplanet.com/wiki/Synchronicity.

Jung believed that many experiences that are coincidences due to “chance” in terms of causality, but suggested the manifestation of parallel events or circumstances (seeming unrelated happenings that suddenly mean something and have a personal connection somehow) in terms of meaning, reflecting this governing dynamic.

SOME FAMOUS EXAMPLES

.

JFKCurious Ex 0d6f37fad75f35e2e20b5889a8f86f45--john-kennedy-abraham-lincoln

The JFK assassination was rife with such coincidence:

The John Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln assassinations, for instance; below was a short sampling, out of many Lincoln/Kennedy coincidences:

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contained seven letters.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

Both opposed the International Bankers: Kennedy gave Executive Order 11110 on June 4, 1963, which would have wiped out the Federal Reserve. Lincoln fought Rothschild’s attempts to finance the Civil War; warned people about the National Banking Act (later, through the efforts of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and Thomas W. House [agent for the Rothschild’s], Lincoln’s efforts were nullified).

Both of their wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater.
Kennedy was shot in a car made by the Ford Motor Company (a Lincoln, no less)

Both successors were named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

Their first names both contained six letters.

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was with friends in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with his friend Marilyn Monroe.

Lincoln’s last child, Tad, had his funeral held on July 16, 1871. Later he was exhumed and moved to a different grave-site.
Kennedy’s son JFK Jr. was lost at sea on July 16, 1999. Later he was found, brought up, and then re-buried at sea.

Apparently, Lincoln had a dream several days before the assassination that he had been killed.
He told his wife that he had seen himself in a casket.

In addition, Lincoln’s son Tad had a pet turkey named Jack. Tad asked his father not to kill the turkey for Thanksgiving.
Although Harry S Truman started the official tradition, Lincoln was the first to “pardon” a Thanksgiving turkey.

.

RMS TITANIC

.

JFKCurious Headline e329bdb180cfd14625f6cf9729711ade

.

Jung’s “meaningful coincidences” led into broader connections, as can be seen below:

There were “four” fiction books written on the sinking of liners similar to the ill-fated and famous RMS Titanic. All of the books were written beforehand:

  • The Sinking of a Modern Liner by W.T. Stead in 1886 (Stead died on the “actual” Titanic in 1912).
  • Futility: The Wreck of the Titan by Morgan Robertson in 1898.
  • The Ships Run by M. McDonnell Bodkin in 1908 (named The Titanic).
  • The White Ghost of Disaster (called the Admiral) which described the sinking of the Titanic-like Admiral; the book was being distributed ‘before’ the real Titanic was set out to sail in 1912.
  • All of these fiction stories displayed actual resemblances to the real Titanic.

.

The Sinking of the Titanic

J.P MORGAN OWNED THE TITANIC

 

The coincidences went even further.

Three elite and wealthy businesspersons that opposed the Federal Reserve Bank, Benjamin Guggenheim (mining and machinery), Isa Strauss (co-owner of Macy Stores), and Colonel Jacob Astor (owner of the Waldorf Astoria) were all deceased on the Titanic voyage in 1912.

.

JFKCurious Morgan titanic_FED

1st Row: J. P. Morgan, Joseph Bruce Ismay, John Jacob Astor, and Benjamin Guggenheim.  2nd row: The Federal Reserve and the Titanic. 

Mogul J.P. Morgan owned the Titanic and the Silver Star Ship Lines.

Morgan was very much in favor of the Federal Reserve Bank.

On April 14, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and all opposition to the Federal Reserve was eliminated. Lincoln was also dedicatedly opposed to the International Bankers. His opposition to the scheming financiers also ended on April 14 (the same day of the week in history as the Titanic sinking and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln).

(In December of 1913, the Federal Reserve System came into being in the United States. Eight months later, the First World War began. John Kennedy’s murder ended his opposition to the Federal Reserve; following his death, escalation of the Vietnam War began.)

Jacob Astor, a Titanic victim, funded and befriended electronics genius Nikola Tesla, but when Morgan discovered that Tesla was going to give his inventions to the public, outside of Morgan’s monopolies, Morgan began to blackball Tesla and ruin Tesla’s career (Tesla’s history, in itself, contained some extraordinary events; of which is beyond the scope this article).

http://lawrencerspencer.com/2011/09/09/jp-morgan-thief-coward-murderer-private-banker/.

(“The Captain of the Titanic was Edward Smith. He was a Jesuit and worked for J.P. Morgan. Anyone could be a Jesuit and their identity not be known. Smith was a ‘Jesuit Tempore co-adjustor…a priest of the short robe…J.P Morgan was also a priest and put Smith in charge of captaining the Titanic…’” [From National Geographic ‘The Secrets of the Titanic,’ {1986}]:

“When the ship departed southern England, on board was Francis Browne. He was the most powerful Jesuit in all of Ireland and the ‘Jesuit Master of Edward Smith.’ Here is Jesuit treachery at its finest. The provincial Father Francis Browne boards the Titanic, photographs the victims, most assuredly briefs the Captain concerning his oath as a Jesuit, and the following morning bids him farewell…” [Eric J. Phelps, Vatican Assassins Halcon Unified Services, p. 247].

“Captain Smith believed this high-ranking ‘Jesuit General’ was God. Browne instructed him on what to do in the North Atlantic waters. ‘Edward Smith was given orders to sink the Titanic and that’s exactly what he did.’ According to Jesuit secret philosophy, the innocent can be massacred for the greater good; the end justifies the means.”)

JFK, JUDYTH BAKER AND ME

.

The above examples portrayed the intricate and on-going phenomena called “meaningful coincidence” that seemed limitless and unending; a few more examples brought the topic closer to home: real-life coincidences of Steve Erdmann in the JFK scenario:

# Judyth Baker, at the age of eight, had a pet lapdog named “Sparky.”  At the approximate age of nine, I also adopted a mongrel pet dog that I named “Sparky.” Mobster Jack Ruby, Jacob Rubenstein, was also nicknamed “Sparky.”

.

JFKCurious sparky006

.

# My dog “Sparky” lived until about late 1963, near the time of Kennedy’s death. About that time, “unseen” teenage “thugs” attacked and disabled Sparky and he had to be put to death.  These ‘criminals’ (I had suspects…SE) apparently were very “jealous” of my dating a girl who later became my first wife, and when confronted by a property-protective Sparky, decided to “kick and beat” my dog.

# “Sparky” Rubenstein had a history of violence and having been involved in dramatic confrontations (not to mention the shooting of Lee Oswald). “…in his youth, his old buddies from Chicago called him ‘Sparky’ because of his short temper.” (p. 553)

# My first-purchased home was on Louisiana Avenue in St. Louis in the early 1970s.  David Ferrie’s apartment was on Louisiana Parkway in New Orleans in 1963. There was also a Louisiana bus line in New Orleans (p. 426), as well as a Louisiana Avenue (p. 207).

# Judyth was 15 months older than Steve Erdmann. On November 22, 1963, she was 20 years, 7 months years-of-age.  I was 19 years, 4 months.

# My father, Steve Erdmann, Sr., passed away 10 months after my birth date, two months short of a twelve-month period. Lee Oswald’s father died “two months” before Oswald’s birth date.

# Grandfather Steve Erdmann died on April 29, my father died on April 21: Judyth met Lee Oswald on April 26.

# When Steve Erdmann was about six-years-of-age, Steve Erdmann’s mother, Clara Erdmann, placed Steve into a Manchester, Missouri Lutheran orphanage (next to the St. Paul Lutheran church). It was a temporary provision; she wanted to relocate and “get back on her feet” (“…Lee explained that his father had died a few months before he was born… [His] mother struggled with financial problems so severe…,” p. 135). Steve stayed at the orphanage for about a three-year period. Lee Oswald was placed in the Lutheran Bethlehem orphanage in New Orleans at the age of three.

# Judyth Baker was working at Pencham Laboratory on November 22, 1963, where one man expressed the “hope that somebody in Dallas would shoot him (Kennedy).”  When the Last Rites were given to the President, cheers went up from the laboratory workers; Judyth’s employer exclaimed “Good!” He later berated Judyth for being a “Goddamned Communist!” (pp. 526-527)  Steve Erdmann was working at a customer-counter in St. Louis where employees discussed the murder as it came out. One of the customers exclaimed:  “It’s about time somebody shot that son-of-a-bitch!”

# Lee Oswald and Steve Erdmann both shared a somewhat tumultuous early life and marriage consisting of abuse, instability and some deceit: “I am used to harpies in my life,” Lee commented, “my mother and my wife are both experts in the department.” (p. 152)

FURTHER INTO THE SHADOWLAND

 

Further Synchronisms and Meaningful Coincidence

 

By:

 

Steve Erdmann

 

The topic of Carl Jung’s synchronistic events and meaningful coincidence could malinger endlessly on topics of John Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, assassinations and personal connections. You would be amazed how it would connect to your personal life, once you inaugurate your intimate study into your own history. Every time I began to further investigate sites and names, on the Internet and other, the “unraveling” became a cascade far more impressive than the Niagara Falls.  Be prepared with pen and pencil and even databases to record the many astounding (probably, even frightening) twists and turns.

The following events about the Everly Brothers were left out of the main article because of their slight connection to Jung’s definition of synchronism, but it still was a coincidence.  It was 1960, and although it was three years before the 1963 events in New Orleans, that year held one interesting synchronism in Steve Erdmann’s life with those of Lee Oswald and Judyth Baker in 1963.  All three persons had infinity with the Everly Brothers and their song “Let It Be Me” (p. 267, May 9, p. 351, June 24, p. 364, June 29 and p. 388, July 18, 1963: The most popular version of  “Let It Be Me” was released in 1960 by The Everly Brothers. It reached the 7th position on the Billboard Hot 100).  “Let It Be Me” was serious backdrop music to a high school romance with Sharon and me, and I thought of her whenever I heard that song on the radio.  It was a depressing time in the life of Steve Erdmann, and it was Sharon’s dedicated romance that kept me from sliding completely ‘under’ into despair.

Other Coincidences

.

Other coincidences on the Lincoln assassination were concerning the fact that John Wilkes Booth was part of a Confederate cabal involving the Confederate Secret Service. Booth made mysterious trips to Montreal. At the time, the pro-Southern cause enjoyed considerable sympathy in Montreal, which was also known as a haunt for agents of the Confederacy.

.

JFKCurious Booth ccnews142_03_big

(Adam Mayers, “Dixie & the Dominion: Canada, the Confederacy and the War for the Union.”

http://www.news1130.com/2014/10/13/lincoln-assassin-wilkes-booth-and-his-trip-to-montreal-months-before-murder/

With John Wilkes Booth as its agent, the Confederate Secret Service devised a plan of retribution–to seize President Lincoln, hold him hostage, and bring the war-weary North to capitulation.  The code word for this scheme was “Come Retribution.”

http://www.upress.state.ms.us/books/127.

Booth conducted a number of duties as a Confederate spy, some of which are also haunting threads into synchronicity:

http://www.answers.com/Q/What_did_john_Wilkes_booth_do_during_civil_war.

There were several other “plots” to disrupt the stability of the North Union, all part of the Confederate stratagem. “The conspiracy that followed revolved around three simultaneous acts of violence calculated to create chaos and fear in the Union government and punish Booth’s enemies for their roles in the bloody war that was ending.  While Booth killed Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre, Powell would murder Secretary of State William H. Seward, and George Atzerodt, another conspirator, would shoot Vice President Andrew Johnson.  But the plot went wrong from the start.  Atzerodt, overcome by fear, could only get as far as the hotel bar where Johnson was staying [he drank all night but never shot the vice president.”])

.

JFKCurious the-lincoln-assassination-8-638

.

(Putting aside, for the moment, Lee Oswald’s guilt or innocence in the shooting of Kennedy) It is now apparent that several, seemingly simultaneous, and apparently, “disconnected” ‘plots’ revolved around the shooting of John Kennedy (a similarity and coincidence to the conspirators in the Lincoln assassination). This involved multiple characters planted about Dallas with suspicious motives and acts, unbeknownst to each other, preparing to engage in some acts of treachery and criminality. What a better way to scheme and yet cover your tracks: not just one patsy but multiple patsies or, even, multiple perpetrators.  Booth made trips to Canada; Oswald (or someone who looked like Oswald) made trips to Cuba; both bastions of conspiracy.

I recalled reading in the back pages of the PostDispatch News (even naming the culprits) that several Cuban shooters were arrested in Dallas that day and placed under suspicion. This scenario was recognized by researcher and CIA executive Brian Latrell (“Castro and a small number of Cuban intelligence officers were complicit in Kennedy’s death but…their involvement fell short of an organized assassination plot,” he wrote in Castro’s Secrets: The CIA and Cuba’s Intelligence Machine). Similarly, there was also author Matthew Smith (JFK: The Second Plot, Mainstream Publishing, 1992, pp. 265-268).

Again, life and its sub-plots seemed like Russian Matryoshka Babushka dolls.  Visupview  Blogspot did extensive research into the complexity of  synchronism in the Kennedy Assassination (far beyond the scope of these short comments): the reader should review Visupview’s work in its entirety:

“My intention in approaching this topic–which has surely spawned hundreds if not thousands of books–is to address elements of the assassination the many scholarly researchers, as well as the moire fringes, have avoided for various reasons. In particular, I would like to place a special emphasis on the synchronicity and the high strangeness surrounding the assassination for all these things surely make it one of the most bizarre events in human history. In doing so I shall attempt to address the more arcane aspects of the assassination–the bizarre secret societies, political organizations, and religious denominations that appear throughout; the drugs and drug trafficking; the possibilities of mind control was used against several of the most significant figures in the assassination; and of course, the UFOs.”

ANTHONY SUMMERS SPEAKS ON MANY PLOTS

.

“‘Everyone will know who I am now,’ Lee Oswald remarked while still alive and under interrogation, but as assassination researcher Anthony Summers puts it, ‘Fifty years on…Oswald remains ill-defined, a figure in the fog of incomplete investigation and the absence of real official will to discover the full truth.’”

Anthony Summers: http://jfkcountercoup.blogspot.com/2013/11/best-book-on-jfk-assassination-anthony.html.

By comparison, to John Wiles Booth and the many “plots” swirling about Lincoln in the Lincoln assassination, there may have been a similar matrix and ‘labyrinth’ of characters, plants, plots, and foils in the Kennedy assassination; Summers suspected one plot:

“The answer comes from an interview conducted in 2007 by Summers and Robert Blakey, formerly chief counsel to the House Committee on Assassinations, with 81-year-old Reinaldo Martinez Gomez, a Cuban exile living in Miami. (Neil Tweedie of  The Telegraph, November 15, 2013.)

.

JFKCurious Herminio_Diaz_Garcia_260px

Hermino Diaz Garcia

.

“Martinez told them of a friend from student days called Herminio Diaz Garcia, an introverted but exceptionally brave man. Diaz, a crack shot, had worked as head of security at a casino in Havana run by the Mafia boss Santo Trafficante. He was also a political assassin, responsible for as many as 20 deaths, and at the time of the Kennedy assassination he was in the United States.”

“After November 22, I don’t want to hear about the JFK case again. It is a nightmare to work on, not only a labyrinth but a labyrinth with lots of turnings off (in) the labyrinth. The best answer is that we don’t know the answer, and probably never will.”
